Bitter Lake: “Frozen Landscapes” has both atmosphere as well as pummeling force

Ambient and Symphonic metal often run into walls of mundane sameness that conflict with intended results. No matter what could go wrong with these types music, one-man Scottish project, Bitter Lake, of does not fall victim to it. The composer reliably challenges the genres’ categorical parts to create something unique and as equally beautiful as it is noisy. And noisy it is, as Bitter Lake’s blend of the aforementioned genres is abrasive, aggressive and loud on the single “Frozen Landscapes”, which is taken from an upcoming album. The song construction and the use of classic black metal fare work well

“Dead Inside” (Prod. Vessels) by M3 El Famoso Leon  is a dark, deep, rock, hip hop love song, about a guy that gets a record deal and falls in love with a mysterious girl. A songwriter, rapper, and singer from Bronx NY, music is M3 El Famoso Leon’s life, it’s how he express his most dark, as well as happy, life experiences.

M3 El Famoso Leon’s lively lyricism and the brilliantly grungy and experimental production form

Matt Westin: “Legacy” – the rising country star with a deep baritone

Matt Westin found his fulfillment in the creative outlets of singing and singing after years of searching, and walked away from a promising career in engineering to pursue that passion. Influences by legendary artists, ranging from Johnny Cash to Garth Brooks, to even Frank Sinatra, Matt found his voice. He honed his vocal ability in bars and clubs around Pittsburgh for over a decade, with his at first reluctant family, becoming his biggest supporters.

Myja display a very specific amount of fearlessness

Los Angeles, CA-based side project Myja featuring Michael Marquart and Jacob Bunton release their debut self-titled album on January 12th, 2018. The record was produced, engineered and mixed by Jason Elgin (Maylene & The Sons Of Disaster, Collective Soul), at The Barn, Marquart’s studio in Malibu, CA. In today’s world of singles, short attention spans and immediate gratification, it goes against the grain to release a 10 track rock album. But then I guess that Myja are not a band to go along with the crowd. Let’s face it: Being a classic rock band in 2018 requires a very specific

Latin Kings Digital Music: ‘Kool Hec Si & djFuego1’ – as abrasive and hardcore, as it is eloquent

Latin Kings Digital Music (LKDM) is one of the longest standing, most talented underground rap groups of all time, and their brand new album, ‘Kool Hec Si & djFuego1’ represents this fact very well. This is the traditional yet matured LKDM rap sound, which is infused with colorful west coast elements, and delivers catchy riffs and well-written lyrical patterns. LKDM are of the 1st generation of west coast hip hop all-stars. The Latin Kings were acknowledged by Warner Bros. Records and featured on the ‘Were all in the Same Gang’ album in 1990.

djFuego1 and Kool Hec Si

Their underground hip hop classic ‘Tumba La Casa’ was the 1st bilingual hip hop recording of the West Coast. The Latin Kings aka Latin Kings Digital Music have re-connected with their original beat maker – the west coast legendary ‘Pride of Pasadena producer, James Broadway aka J’ Brodzilla aka B’way.

It’s hard to imagine, that just over 20 years ago, hip hop was still a relatively new musical genre just breaking into the mainstream. Today, no one questions its legitimacy or attempts to marginalize rap by calling it a “fad.” It’s hard to even imagine anyone ever doing that, at this point.

There were a litany of great hip hop artists and groups in the ’80s that laid the groundwork for the genre’s success, but it was the artists of the ’90s that broke through to the mainstream. Now Latin Kings Digital Music bring that legacy straight to today’s sound. ‘Kool Hec Si & djFuego1’ is a remarkably strong album that finds the group revisiting familiar terrain with renewed vigor.

LKDM has an expansive lyrical base, and ‘Kool Hec Si & djFuego1’ finds the crew milking their subjects of choice – the family, the contrasting sentiments of urban and street life, big busted mamas with even bigger booties – to haunting and often memorable effect. From its first track ‘Back To The Street’, this album is rock-solid, with Kool Hec Si and DJ Fuego 1 flowing nicely, complemented by DJ Broadway’s stellar production.

‘Coqueta’ is a flirtatious Latino groove filled with sexual innuendo which precedes ‘King Life’, a classic 90’s joint that will keep the listener drawn in. This leads into the smooth rhyming ‘My Folks Familia’, and the even smoother ‘Big Bolas’, which features some cool horn punctuations.

The overall sound of ‘Que Lo Que’ and ‘Just Like Him’, showcases excellent bass driven productions and heated flows used to create some very aggressive music indeed. The onslaught continues with ‘16 Shots’ and ‘Mas Dinero’ which is multilayered, harmonically wild music, as abrasive and hardcore, as it is eloquent.

Modern hip-hop acts wish they had the intellect and energy to make an album like this for the mainstream. There is no getting around the flow and aggressive style that Latin Kings Digital Music are able to promote here.

There are not many great rap albums in the 21st century era. Probably two handfuls really. ‘Kool Hec Si & djFuego1’ could easily find its way into that collection, and I’ve still got 5 songs to listen to on this 15 track collection.

To be immersed in modern music, whether it be rap, or any other genre, equals taking a bath in conformity and mediocrity. Over the years LKDM have developed a musical distinctiveness; a sound that bolsters the force of their thematic conceptualizations.

And at this point in their careers it would have been easy for Latin Kings Digital Music to coast on their reputation and experience, but ‘Kool Hec Si & djFuego1’ finds the crew still making music that matters!
